A caring, healing touch

I've been massaging people since I was 12 years old, from my dad, a construction worker, to other family members, friends, and co-workers.  I hate to see someone in pain and always tried to help.  When I looked over options for a career change, it had to meet at least three criteria: 

  • I can help people

  • Be great at what I do

  • Something I would enjoy doing for the rest of my life

The obvious choice was to become a Licensed Massage Therapist.

I've been massaging people since I was 12 years old, from my dad, a construction worker, to other family members, friends, and co-workers.  I hate to see someone in pain and always tried to help.  When I looked over options for a career change, it had to meet at least three criteria: 

  • I can help people

  • Be great at what I do

  • Something I would enjoy doing for the rest of my life

The obvious choice was to become a Licensed Massage Therapist.

I have given up to a 4-hour massage to one person enabling them to go dancing, a love she had given up 16 years before.

Another person, a 3-hour massage greatly reducing lower back pain, allowing her former sweet personality to shine through instead of the angry hopelessness she had come to feel. Massage is very healing, not just for the body, but also for the mind and the spirit. Don't suffer, when someone who cares can help you.

Wonderful person to do business with. Explains the what and why behind treatment. Great pressure and skill for a fabulous massage.

Attentive and knowledgeable. I can’t say enough about her technique and awareness of my medical needs. Severe shoulder stiffness and numbness in my arm, for the first time in a long time I feel on the road to full recovery.

Kathy is an absolute magician! I came into our 90min session with massive knots in my back and shoulders. Kathy worked tirelessly to work out all the kinks, frequently checking in with me to ensure the pressure wasn’t too intense. While Kathy is able to deliver more pressure than most can tolerate, she also does a phenomenal job with soothing and relaxing techniques in areas that hold less tension like the neck. She has several unique techniques that she’s coined that involve heat and pressure combinations, allowing her to work areas without inflicting discomfort. During our consultation, she spent time teaching some stretches and mobility exercises. This was the first time I’ve walked away from a massage feeling like the technician was genuinely concerned with my heeling and not about the transactional nature of our appointment. Kathy has my highest recommendation for those interested in both medical/deep tissue and for Swedish/relaxation; she is highly skilled and able to tailor her techniques to your needs. Can’t wait to visit again!
